Betty had her appointment with the orthopedic doctor this morning. As she said when she came back to the car, “There’s good news and bad news.”
The good news is the bone is healing well and no surgery is on the horizon for her. The bad news is he wants her to go another two weeks without putting any pressure on that foot.
This means two more weeks of using the knee walker. We had hoped she would be able to walk a little bit and not need the walker, at least as much. Yet, we’re grateful for the healing that is there and together we’ll get through the next two weeks at which time we’re hopeful she will be able to walk again on that foot.
In the meantime Nurse Jessie is keeping a close watch on Betty…
